I have memories of 914's similar to the yellow one in the early 70's when I was a kid, but I don't recall the slant nose and sharp edges. I think it was more of a Europa look. I haven't seen any since that time period and nowardays wonder if I just imagined it.

I can honestly say that I also have those Road & Track issues, along with many more years worth. All in boxes, somewhere. Which boxes I could not tell you. My girlfriend thinks its an illness. I just can't help it!

BTW, 30 for 50 is a good deal. R&T was a good magazine back then!

I simply got all of the 914 articles, collected into a convenient book.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0948207450/qid=1063379985/sr=1-10/ref=sr_1_10/002-7584225-4104065?v=glance&s=books

Or all of the R&T ("Rodent Track") articles on Porsches, collected:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0946489254/qid=1063380074/sr=1-7/ref=sr_1_7/002-7584225-4104065?v=glance&s=books

Hmm. Glad I got them when they were still in print!!
